In order to properly market your business, we must first understand it.

Meet the team

Filip Bartos
Owner

I have been working in the Marketing field in one way or another for the last 15+ years and I love what I get to do each day. I get to work with a great team that knows more about what they do than I ever could. I also get to collaborate with great people and companies in all sorts of truly interesting areas of business. Coupled with the fact that the best practices in marketing are ever-changing, it makes for fun days that zoom right by!
I love chatting about anything marketing so if you have any questions, let’s set aside some time for a coffee. 

If you had to choose between using Internet Explorer forever, or permanently using an AOL e-mail address, which one would it be?
I would use my AOL email address – no question in my mind at all. I would wear that address as a badge of honour; shouting to the world that I have been using email since the Wild West days of the Internet.

Who would play you in a movie of your life?
I would request that it would be Bradley Cooper but due to scheduling conflicts, we would settle on Jack Black.

When you were little, what did you want to be?
I always wanted to be a marine biologist. I was sure that I would get to play around the beach and water all day without a care in the world. It was a sad day indeed when I realized that there was quite a bit of work and knowledge of the sciences involved in the actual job description.

Blair Amyotte
Marketing and Content Consultant

I spent the first 11 years of my career working in radio. In those 11 years, I was fortunate enough to do a bit of everything. From on air, to becoming the youngest program director in Canada, at the age of 24, to creating award-winning promotions and building successful and sustainable advertising campaigns. The common thread for success? Great content. I love creating memorable content. Whether it’s on-air, online or on any other platform. I know what it takes to build a winner. It’s one thing to discover “what" works, I love figuring out the “how” and “why”, it works.

To say I am passionate about marketing and advertising, is an understatement. I am also passionate about building relationships and becoming an integral part of your marketing team. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your online presence, your social media strategy, or attract more eyes and ears, I’d love to help out. No more average ads. Let’s build comprehensive campaigns and awesome online content together.

I’m excited to be a part of the Marketing Blendz team and putting all of our expertise to use for you.

Sarah Christensen
Project Manager

I started out as a graphic designer and over the years turned into a project manager. I've been in the industry for over 10 years, and through all of those years, I've turned into an alignment/whitespace monster when proofing designs. The designers either love it or hate it but I will point out the 2px they're off!

I have a thing for baking, cats and gaming. In my spare time, I'm either baking treats for the team to taste test, collecting cats or playing games on my Xbox.

If you were forced to open a bakery, what would you name it?
Sara Lee's - When growing up I'd get jokes on how my mom should have named me Sarah Lee instead of Sarah Ann. Especially with my fondness for baking!

What is your favourite Disney movie:
Snow White and the Seven Dwarves - I had a thing for Dopey as a kid and went through a phase where I needed everything Dopey related (school supplies, pyjamas, bed sheets etc.)

Stephanie Kulovics
Senior Graphic Designer

I love being creative, it's not only something I do during work hours but something that I enjoy all the time. Whether it's working on new designs or going out with my favourite film camera and taking photos I love being able to express myself through different creative mediums. I enjoy travelling and would one day like to see the world, as long as I can bring my cat. 

What is your favorite Disney movie?
Alice in Wonderland

What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever been?
At the top of Mount Pilatus in Switzerland

If you had to be on a reality TV show, which one would you choose?
I would totally say Survior because I love it and I've been watching it since I can remember; but I don't know if I'd be able to deal with being stuck on an Island with a bunch of hangry people that have no food.
